The Association firmly believes that member training is key to the development of our industry. This is why we offer training on assorted topics, such as alpaca breeding and fleece transformation.

Our Annual General Assembly is the perfect opportunity to provide this training. In 2016, training consisted of a presentation on Birthing and Fertility, at the Saint-Hyacinthe Veterinary Hospital. In 2017, the presentation to our members was on Cost Effectiveness. In 2018, participants received training on Dermis Histology and Fleece Histograms.

April’s annual Alpaca Show is yet another occasion to acquire knowledge regarding the world of alpacas. Judges offer precious advice on alpaca types and fleece quality.

October’s fleece assessment/seminar offered the opportunity to get together and learn. There is so much data analysis – only about fleece!

Of note as well, some breeders organize events at their farm, so do stay informed and visit the website regularly!
